  1. Hi everyone, This week's new free tracks are: "Cyber Dystopia"_Looping http://soundimage.org/sci-fi-5/ "Sewer Creepers"_Looping "Grunge Bot"_Looping "Breakdown"_Looping "Countdown"_Looping http://soundimage.org/sci-fi-4/ I get emails every once in a while from folks who seem to be having a bit of trouble navigating the site. Here are some things to keep in mind that should hopefully help: 1. The titles of the pages in the tan box under the header image are actually links to the various pages. Hover over them to highlight them (a box appears around them) and then click. 2. I think sometimes people are fooled when they click on one of the page links, like for example "Fantasy 3" and nothing seems to happen. But if you look closer, you'll see that the title of the link you clicked on actually turns to bold indicating that you are now on that particular page. Simply scroll down to see the contents of that page. 3. Since all of the page links appear at the top of every page, it's easy to think that you haven't been taken anywhere after clicking on one of them. Again, notice that the title of the link you clicked on has now turned bold...and you have to scroll down to see the page contents. Anyhow, I hope that's helpful! :-)
  2. Hi everyone, I've got a site up with free music that you can use in commercial projects, non-commercial, personal, whatever you like. It's all original...all my own work. All I ask is to be credited as indicated on my homepage: http://soundimage.org/ I sincerely hope my tracks are helpful. Any and all feedback is welcome and always appreciated. All the best, Eric
  3. Hi everyone, This week's new images are all seamless so they can be tiled. The first group might be useful in sci-fi games. Feel free to scale them, mix with procedural textures or other images as needed. http://soundimage.org/txr-sci-fi/ The second bunch are stone textures and could be useful for walls or other structures. http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/ Please note: On all of my texture pages, the seamless images are grouped below the standard ones so make sure to scroll down...(WAY down on the rock/stone page.) Anyhow, I hope some of them are helpful. Have a great week!
  4. Hi everyone, I've been building a library of images that you are welcome to use in your projects. They are all original...all my own work. I think a lot of them could be made into cool textures for games. All I ask is to be attributed as indicated on my homepage: http://soundimage.org/ The images are on my "TXR" pages. I'm adding new ones all the time, so be sure to check back often. I sincerely hope that some of them are useful. Any and all constructive feedback is welcome and always appreciated. :-) All the best, Eric

  6. Hi everyone, A bunch of cool new stone images are ready. You'll find them here: http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/ I hope some of them are helpful!
  7. I've received a lot of requests for chiptunes style music so I've opened a chiptunes page and uploaded a bunch of tracks to get it started. I hope some of them are helpful! http://soundimage.org/chiptunes/ Have a great week!
  8. Hi everyone, This week's new free tracks are from my sci-fi and horror pages. They are: "Sewer Monsters"_Looping http://soundimage.org/sci-fi-2/ "Closing In 2"_Looping "Night Stalker"_Looping "Disturbed Soundscape"_Looping "Lurking in the Shadows"_Looping http://soundimage.org/horrorsurreal/ I've also been getting emails asking if my tracks are free to use in commercial projects. The answer is yes (with proper attribution.) Please see my homepage for attribution information. :-) Eric
  9. Hi everyone, I just began a new page of cool Sci-Fi texture images. Give it a look: http://soundimage.org/txr-sci-fi/ I'll be adding many more images, including skins for creatures, aliens, etc. Any requests? Btw, I've also had folks ask about how to credit me for my images. Please simply list me and my website under "Textures" in your credits section...there's no need to identify which images are mine...unless you really want to. :-) Anyhow, I think this is going to evolve into a really cool page. Hope it's helpful! Eric
  10. Hi everyone, It's a little hard to believe, but Soundimage turned 3 years old this month, so I wanted to send out a big thank you to everyone who has been so positive and encouraging from the start. Creating original music is a lot of work, but it's thrilling to hear my tracks in your games, apps, videos and emerging art forms like interactive novels. I feel like part of me is in your work, and it's incredibly satisfying to be able to help you make your visions into realities. Thank you! In a few more weeks, I should have seamless looping versions done of nearly every track on the site. That said, this week's new free tracks are from my sci-fi pages. They are: "Retro Sci-Fi Planet"_Looping "Night Winds"_Looping "Eerie Cyber World"_Looping "Dizzybot"_Looping http://soundimage.org/sci-fi/ "Dystopic Technology"_Looping http://soundimage.org/sci-fi-2/ I hope some of them are helpful! Eric

  12. Hi everyone, I've added about 100 new texture images. You'll find them on the following pages: TXR - BRICK - (some new seamless "fantasy" bricks) TXR - GROUND - (stones that could be used for riverbeds, railroad beds, etc.) TXR - METAL - (both standard and seamless) TXR - ROCK/STONE - (lots of cool rock textures, both standard and seamless...realistic as well as fantasy creations) TXR - VEGETATION - (some cool ground cover that has a surreal look) Enjoy! http://soundimage.org/
  13. This week's new free images are on my TXR - WOOD page. At the top, I've added a bunch of smooth wood images that might come in handy for interiors. Some have dents and other signs of wear. If you scroll down (way down) to Seamless Textures, you'll find about 20 "fantasy wood" images...(I'm experimenting with creating different looks.) Anyhow, they all live here: http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/ I hope some of them are helpful!
  14. Well, it was another busy week, but I guess that's a good thing...keeping busy keeps me out of trouble...usually... ;-) Anyhow, I managed to get these done: "RIVER IN TROUBLE"_Looping – Thinking about the Colorado River in the American south west. "ALASKAN MOONRISE"_Looping – Could work in a nature documentary or perhaps something else. "FLURRIES"_Looping – That chill in the air tells you the first snow fall of winter is on its way. http://soundimage.org/naturescience-2/ "PELICAN BAY TIKI PARTY"_Looping – A fun tropical piece. http://soundimage.org/positive-upbeat/ "SCULPTURE GARDEN"_Looping – A string piece with the suggestion of gently bubbling fountains. Might be nice for a classy outdoor event. http://soundimage.org/classical-sounding/ I also created a new page of sky images...mostly taken around sunset...for anyone who's interested...(TXR - SKIES) I hope some of them are helpful. :-) Have a good week!

Hey Everyone, I had a busy week shooting images, but I did manage to get some new tracks done: "STRANGE NATURE"_Looping – Bizarre creatures are everywhere…if you look. http://soundimage.org/naturescience/ "HYPNOTIC ORIENT"_Looping – I’d love to hear this in a travel video. "EXOTIC DREAMING"_Looping – of faraway places. (I've been doing a lot of that lately.) "EXOTIC CRUISING"_Looping – might be nice in a travel or vacation video. (Anyone want to treat me to a cruise?

  20. I want to send out a great big heartfelt thank you to everyone who has personally reached out to me about my film "Then Meditative Coast."

It's on my new "Virtual Cinema" page...give it a try. :-) In the meantime, I've got more free looping tracks ready on my fantasy pages.
